Since Hamburg based Denis Karimani aka Remute produced a techno track with samples of Donald Trump’s presidential announcement last year I hit him up via twitter earlier today if this wasn’t the right time for an update. And here we go:
Some hours later he replied with this video. What a fun dude. Remute of course, not Donald Trump if that for some reason shouldn’t be clear ;-)
Hailing from Munich where he grew up under the Swedish and German techno influence. Snitch is based in Berlin now, who still works with hardware musical gear only and follows his roots of turning experiments and noises into sensible techno music.
Skalen EP consists of sleek, functional but no-nonsense techno variations from Snitch. Leading with Skalen – a deadly, serrated tool fashioned to carve up the hardest of dance floors and takes you through the tunnel without a torch.
Kromag displays a bit more of the swing that this producer does so well adding darker atmosphere to a killer effective techno banger. The EP rounds up with a terrific Laiva remix of Kromag. Laiva was discovered in the Eastern town of Kuhmo and made an appearance on WaveReform before with a killer T#16 record. He makes it all about dub-scuffed kicks here and pulsating bleeps throughout his version of ruthlessly straightforward, point-blank attack for the 48-hour-party people.
DEAD CERT. Records is a label linked to the well known website deathtechno.com ran by Jack! Who? in the UK. A diverse palette has seen their previous releases feature music from artists including Audio Injection / Truncate, Hans Bouffmyhre, Joachim Spieth, Miss Sunshine, DJ Spider and Eomac to name but a few.
“Royal Mail” is the new celebratory series to coincide with the labels 4th birthday this year, enlisting a particular artist to create new remix impressions from the labels back catalogue of original music.
DEAD CERT. favourite Callum Plant from Manchester (UK) is the product of a thriving Techno scene and he continues to be on the rise after music released on Lex Gorrie’s Unknown Territory, Ill Bomb Records in New York and Floor Ready in Scotland amongst others.
XHEI is known for quality Techno visions that has found his music land on CLR, Sleaze, Micro.fon, Illegal Alien and many more. Callum adds a signature stomping beat to an already heavily rotated track, where “Requiem” has picked up support from Alan Fitzpatrick, Tommy Four Seven, Sam Paganini and many more.
Belarusian artist Energun known for works on Rebekah’s Decoy and beyond released a four track EP called Psychology in 2014 and Callum takes on “Developmental” with a fierce and pulsating energy adding suspense and eerie atmospherics. The main hook is transformed into a gritty and swirling rave fuelled synth that evokes plenty of aural pleasure that is sure to devastate dancefloors.
Regular DEAD CERT. contributions from TMM Records owner Vegim have been highly regarded, including the Signal Handling EP that featured a huge remix by Affin’s Joachim Spieth of “Digital Fracture.” A tough groove uses elements of the original to set the scene in part, allowing Callum’s own stamp to take shape with a completely new and unique interpretation that has some extra hypnotic angles.
The final rework is a track exclusive to the labels first vinyl release and featuring the label bosses themselves. William Welt collaborating with Jack! Who? the Editor of deathtechno.com on “Lurker” where Callum gives it a grooving, dubby twist with a broken beat and scything synths.
I found that record by Acid Jesus the other day and just had to do a quick Remix / Edit to give it a modern touch and play it in my sets. If you like it, here you go -> MP3 Download. Also Also check out the original version.
The original is written & produced by Jörn Elling Wuttke & Roman Flügel who also released techno bangers as Alter Ego back in the day. It was released on the German Label Klang Elektronik in 1994. Also available on YouTube.
Daniel Schröder (Fogmountain Soundsystems) released a new track earlier today. You can get it on bandcamp and name your price which is going to charity as he stated in the posting:
It’s a techno track about change and i spent some time producing but it’s free on purpose: if you want, you can spent money buying it or download it for free… every single amount of money will be transferred to SOS Children’s Villages ( www.sos-childrensvillages.org / www.sos-kinderdoerfer.de ) who for example support syrian children who had to deal with five years of war and kids from Nepalese families rebuild their lives and livelihoods.
To make things clear, there’s some percent that go to bandcamp for hosting this song and to paypal for managing the transactions. But everything that will be transferred to my account will be 100% forwarded to the SOS Children’s Villages – i don’t want any money out of it
I’ve been following and liking David Meiser’s Releases for a while now. Besides as a producer it seems like his DJ career is also going upwards. He seems a nice down to earth guy to me, go David!
From 9th to 14th April 2015 he made his first tour in America with dates in Buenos Aires and Córdoda (Argentina). The idea of this 7-minute documentary is to share the thoughts and feelings of an artist who just started touring internationally. Besides his music to me that
Carlos Gascón and his camera accompanied Meiser in this trip, recording all the key moments, and immortalizing the great connexion of the artist with the Argentinian public. Available to download the set played at Under Buenos Aires + Tracklist on David’s Soundcloud.
